About Me

I am a former Federal and State prosecutor and former supervisor in both the U.S. attorney's office and Dallas County District Attorney' soffice.  Recognized by D Magazine as one of the Best White Collar Lawyers in Dallas.  Recognized as a Texas Superlawyer. 


Several of my cases have been featured in local and national news.  However, we pride ourselves on discreet representation.  Publicity can hurt a client and her reputation.  Therefore, some clients hire us for our discreet, quite ability to resolve cases either before indictment or afterwards.
